Let Orbitz.com help you find flights to Warsaw. Warsaw, the capital of Poland, is a city that is known for rebuilding. During World War II, nearly 85 percent of Warsaw was destroyed. Today, the city's skyline features a mixture of modern skyscrapers, drab houses built when communism prevailed in Warsaw and the historic building that survived the war in the Praga neighborhood. With historic sites, a variety of culinary options and old-style bazaars, Warsaw has something for everyone.
The Warsaw Chopin Airport is located in the Wlochy district, approximately 5 miles from the city's center. Several airlines provide flights to Warsaw, including Air France, Brussels Airlines, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Swiss International Airlines. Ele Sky Taxi, Super Taxi and Sawa Taxi are licensed to provide taxi service to the airport. Cab fare from the airport to downtown costs about 40 Polish zlotys. Alternatively, light rail gets you to the city in about 25 minutes, or you can take the bus for 3.60 Polish zlotys.
Warsaw is prone to bitterly cold winters and mild summers. If you visit during the winter, bring warm clothes that you can layer and a heavy coat. During this time, the average temperature ranges from 21°F to 35°F. The best time to visit is in the summer, when the average temperatures range from the mid-50s to the mid-70s. If this is your first visit to Warsaw, you should go to the Warsaw Uprising Museum. The museum recollects the World War II event that permanently scarred the city's landscape. The Old Town, the Royal Route and Lazienki Park should also top your itinerary list. If you enjoy history, visit the Pawiak Prison, the Royal Castle, Treblinka and the Zelazowa Wola.
The mild summer weather and variety of places to explore make Warsaw an intriguing vacation destination. If you're looking for deals on air travel, visit Orbitz.com to find cheap flights to Warsaw and discounted vacation packages.
Warsaw’s seasons vary from quite hot in the summer to bitterly cold in the winter. The high season is during the warmest months, from May to September. This time of year certainly has the most agreeable weather, but it can also be rainy, especially in July, which has both the hottest temperatures and the highest rainfall. The midsummer months are also the busiest time of the year, both for foreign visitors and locals, so most accommodations and public transportation will be crowded.
January to March are the coldest months with the shortest days—and heavy snowfall can slow the city to a crawl. However, Warsaw is a major European capital city, and therefore has visitors year round. If the cold weather isn’t a concern, winter can offer good rates for accommodation.
Spring and autumn are the shoulder seasons, and arguably the ideal times to visit Warsaw. The weather will be relatively warm during the days and cooler at night, with occasional rain showers. Pair the mild climate with reduced crowds at hotels and attractions, and the shoulder seasons offer great opportunities for exploring the city or the surrounding countryside.
A lively and cosmopolitan city, Warsaw hosts festivals and events throughout the year. Of course, outdoor markets and music festivals happen in spring, summer, and autumn. Alternatively, opera and theater fans should plan their trips from September to June, as most of these productions close down for the summer.
